Guest house on a picturesque hillside in Italy

September 1, 2017

Studio Titus Bernhard Architekten designed a guest house on a steep slope in Gargnano, Italy, at an altitude of almost 300 meters above the surface of Lake Garda.

The house is located in a park area overlooking the lake, on the territory of an old country estate. In order to use the narrow land plot with maximum benefit, the architects have placed all the auxiliary functions underground, so they do not occupy the building volume.
An impressive panoramic pool, merging with the blue of the lake and the sky, follows the contours of the site.
The strict architecture of the building itself combines minimalistic simplicity and cleanliness of the lines with the traditional dry masonry of stone walls, which gives the house a sensual, tactile character.
The warm, idyllic atmosphere is created thanks to the abundance of wooden textures, homespun textiles in the interior, as well as combinations of open stonework and rough whitewash.
Simple rectangular openings of windows emphasize the thickness of the stone walls and offer amazing views of the lake, the mountains and the park.
Landscape and building, nature and artifacts are in symbiosis, giving people the opportunity to feel at home in this magical corner.
